    Ok Maybe not for those older of us, but for the younger crowd, does anyone play this game!? I usually fit one game in when i'm tired of typing articles or i've just finished what I need to submit in AMR / xGenSEO or setting up a wordpress.

    For those of you that don't know what it is, it's like a DOTA type game where it's a 5v5 tug-of-war, it's kind of cartoon-ey but the gameplay is nice and the game is developed pretty heavily with new champions(characters) coming out like every ~2 weeks.

    Here's the Youtube Video for the First Season of League of Legends

    Anyways, it's free to play and the game runs off micro transactions in the form of skins that don't give an advantage to the player, just a different look. Give the game a shot as I find it that you often need to take many breaks with IM because it's a never ending process, rinse, repeat, scale, even if games are not your thing, take your eyes off the computer or go outside for a bit! :)

    You lost me at DOTA. WC3 TFT is still the best strategy game out there, all about micro with heros, small forces and items and then DOTA came along and nobody fucking plays anymore because they like that stupid game!

    I play TFT during breaks/bored time. Probably 1-5 games a day. I know its from like 2000 but whatever, only game I've got but SC2 which blows, way less micro required its all about build order.

    back in the days we did lan parties in the basements of our parents and played 3 days straight wc3 tft funmaps because we all sucked totally in normal game.

    that was a lot of fun.
    the internet was way too slow to play. we did not had flatrates and had to pay for every minute.

    I'm playing HoN (heroes of newerth), it's way more similar to DotA than LoL.

    I'm waiting for DotA2 and will convert back if it's better than HoN.

    LoL? I dont find it interesting. But everyone has his own opinion of course.

    I can't stand computer games. My friend is addicted to LoL though.

    I play SOCOM 4 beta in my spare time.
